ANGELES, PART OF A PARTNERSHIP THAT HAS WORKED. THEY'VE DONE UNBELIEVABLE WORK AT DEBS PARK, MUCH MORE THAN WE WERE ABLE TO DO WHEN IT WAS OUR PARK. AND SO I THINK THESE PARTNERSHIPS ARE WORTH BUILDING ON AND THAT'S WHAT I'M ASKING OUR LIBRARIAN TO DO AND SHE KNOWS FIRSTHAND. SHE'S WORKING DIRECTLY WITH THE LIBRARIANS THAT ARE WORKING WITH THE CITY. SHE'S WORKING DIRECTLY WITH THOSE CITIES WHEN SHE WAS ASKING TO PUT THEM ON THE BALLOT. SHE'S VISITED WITH THEM AND IS INTIMATE TO WHAT'S GOING ON. SO I JUST WANT TO GIVE HER AS MANY OPTIONS AS POSSIBLE SO THAT, WHEN IT COMES BACK TO US, WE HAVE A FULL RANGE OF OPTIONS. THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT IT IS GOING TO BE A POLITICAL COMPROMISE BUT TALKING ABOUT UNEVENNESS IS NOT WHEN IT STARTED WHEN I GOT HERE. THIS, WHEN I CAME HERE, LIBRARIES AND OUR COUNTY LIBRARIES HAVE BEEN VERY UNEVEN. IT STARTED OUT AS A COUNTYWIDE SYSTEM. CITIES INCORPORATED IN BETWEEN. THERE WAS ALL KINDS OF THINGS THAT HAPPENED. SOME ARE REGIONAL LIBRARIES, SOME ARE LIBRARIES IN UNINCORPORATED AREAS BUT UNEVENNESS, UNEQUAL IS CLEARLY THERE, AND I WOULD INVITE ANY OF YOU TO VISIT SOME OF THOSE LIBRARIES AND SEE HOW DIFFERENT THEY ARE FROM SOME OTHER LIBRARIES, EVEN WITHIN THE SAME CITIES AND THE SAME COMMUNITIES. SO I'M JUST TRYING TO ARM HER WITH AS MANY OPTIONS AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE, UNFORTUNATELY, I KNOW WHEN IT COMES TO THAT DAY THAT WE HAVE TO MAKE THESE CUTS, IT'S GOING TO BE VERY DIFFICULT.
